we will never fall

(Art: Rassouli "Beyond Heaven")

I can hear the words
of all that's gone unheard
for I can hear the song
of your inner-most Secret Self
It has been calling me
it has been stirring me
through a thousand words
and a thousand more
a thousand tears
and I have heard them all
and I have heard your call

I can see in your smile
the light of a thousand angels
how they have been lighting me
how you have been loving me
in a thousand ways
and a thousand more
through a thousand things
through so many scenes

I have seen them all
I now love them all

this sweet life
she's now turned your head
and here you face the right direction
here you face the deepest part
of life's boundless affection
here you sit to face your Self

now you see the sight
now you see the light
now you come to face the vision
painted by your inner Heart

isn't it lovely, the way it's beaming
isn't it lovely, the way we're unfolding

and how I have been loving you
and how I have been hearing you
through your thousand words
and in a thousand ways
through so many scenes
we have seen in this dream

and now you see it all
and now you've come to know
that we could never fall
so we will never fall

a thousand things
and a thousand more
we will never fall
we could never fall

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour
